Size and Scale

This month's Project '13 Blog Circle subject was size and scale. I really had a hard time figuring out what to photograph. I didn't want to do something staged but then I caved and tried a few things. One of which was photographing one of my son's matchbox cars on a cobblestone but it didn't provide the effect I was looking for. A few days later I luckily came across news via Tribeca Citizen that the underground World Trade Center PATH passageway opened. The passageway links the World Financial Center in Battery Park to the PATH station at the World Trade Center. It is very beautiful and a nice diversion from my regular walk across the West Side Highway (much safer too).

The passageway is a sea of white marble and is truly magnificent. My son calls it "cloud city". It really was the perfect place to showcase size and scale. The first photograph looks East towards the WFC side.
 Very long and steep escalators lead you up to the WFC in Battery Park.

Thanks for taking the time to look at my size and scale post. Please continue around the circle to see what my talented friend Sarah has done this month for size and scale, here.

Hannah Robinett: Jewelry Entrepreneur

A couple months ago my friend Hannah Robinett asked me to take some portraits to be used for her new Brooklyn based jewelry business, mynlyn. We ventured out on a nice Sunday morning and walked the streets of northwest Tribeca. Tribeca is a wealth of old warehouses that provide texturally rich backgrounds, like brick, graffiti, and those old stairs with embedded glass (to provide light in cellars). Here are some of my favorite shots from that day.

If you get a chance, please visit Hannah's jewelry website here: mynlyn. Mynlyn is limited edition 3D printed jewelry creatively designed in Brooklyn, NY. I've got my eye on a few pieces!
